Killeen Police are investigating a fatal motorcycle crash involving a Fort Hood soldier Thursday night. A motorcyclist crashed and was found by police in the 5300 block of Bridle Dr. at 9:56 p.m.

Officers say that based off the preliminary investigation the victim, 29-year-old Sgt.

Martin then fell off the motorcycle, rolled on the asphalt, and hit a 2001 Ford Focus parked nearby.

The motorcycle slid away before hitting into a flat bed utility trailer nearby.Martin was transported to the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center in critical condition. 

Even though Martin was wearing a helmet, he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at 10:44 p.m. He was a petroleum supply specialist, and was assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 206th Military Intelligence Battalion since June 2012.
